Court Summary

A man from Washington arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine while already facing manufacturing charges was sentenced to three years, eight months in prison Tuesday in Nevada County Superior Court.

Larry A. Schies, 48, was first arrested in August 2001 when agents found meth-making ingredients at his friends’ home. Narcotics agents followed clues to Schies’ home and reported finding meth and meth lab equipment. He was convicted of meth possession in that case.
